Terrorism and Stereotyping in Southern California

Hosted by

As he opened his hearings on what he calls the "radicalization" of Muslims in the US, New York Congressman Peter King responded to critics who call it a "witch hunt," saying that "to back down would be a craven surrender to political correctness… Despite what passes for conventional wisdom in certain circles, there is nothing radical or un-American in holding these hearings." In the latest edition of the Jewish Journal, two local leaders take strong exception to King and warn that his hearings could "exacerbate" the reality of the terrorist threat rather than remediate it.  They are an unusual pairing: Imam Jihad Turk and orthodox Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky.
